Mid Week Tease: “He Was About to Get Laid” #MWTease

MidWeekTease2Hi everyone,

Welcome back to Mid Week Tease. This week I’m sharing a tease from Can’t Get Enough, an anthology that released yesterday from Cleis Press. It contains my story, When He Gets Home.

Owen’s body jerked as he responded to the shock of the back support disappearing from behind him. Nina’s expression still looked strange—yet eerily beautiful—and when she rested a palm on his chest and shoved him, he landed on the now-flat backrest with a thump which knocked the air out of his lungs. “W—what are you—” His hastily spoken words were cut off when Nina straddled his lap and silenced him by leaning down and pressing her lips to his.

Nina couldn’t help but find Owen’s reaction amusing. He looked as though he thought she was going to kill him, or something. Despite that, she felt his cock hardening beneath her and was glad her husband’s body was ready, even if his brain couldn’t quite catch up. She knelt up enough so she could slide her hand between their bodies and cup his crotch, squeezing and stroking his rapidly growing erection.

Owen’s eyes widened as his wife played with his hard on through his suit trousers, then abruptly tugged down his fly, slipped her hand through the gap and manoeuvred his cock out through it. Part of him wanted to say something about the fact the edges of the zip might scratch his shaft, possibly even draw blood, but the rest of him told him to shut up complaining—he was about to get laid. In the car, no less!

Why I Write BDSM – BDSM Blog Hop! #BDSMhop

bdsmbloghopbadgeWelcome to the BDSM Blog Hop, which is all about raising awareness of various practises, and educating those that want to learn more about BDSM and the lifestyle.

I thought a good way for me to do this would be to put up a post on why I write BDSM. I never used to, you see. When I first started writing erotica and erotic romance, I kept it pretty vanilla – usually between a man and a woman, though not necessarily in a bed. Thinking about it, the first story I had published took place in an army truck!

I didn’t understand BDSM, and I didn’t really like reading books that featured BDSM. But now, several years on, my mind has been well and truly opened. I’ve read lots of books about it, researched it – albeit from the comfort of my computer chair – and have now penned several books containing it, including two full-length novels. If you’d told me that five or six years ago, I’d have laughed at you.

Basically, the longer I’ve been in the industry, the more I’ve learned about all kinds of things to do with sex and alternative lifestyles. I’ve always been open-minded, luckily, and I’ve always enjoyed learning new things. So, for me, adding lots of new pairings and genres to my writing CV was a natural progression. Now, I thoroughly enjoy it. I love having different characters with different kinks – or not – to play with, to tease, to taunt, to give them happy endings. Or not. BDSM just opened up a whole new world for me to write in, and now I’m very glad that I did. I think some of my best books and stories are the kinky ones, and my first novel, Stately Pleasures, which is a BDSM ménage erotic romance, is still in the Amazon UK charts over six months after its release.

So yeah, it’s been a learning curve. But wow, what a fun curve it’s been! Carry on hopping to find out more about BDSM in all its guises, find great books about it, and so on. By the time this hop is over, I’ve no doubt you’ll be enlightened – and I’m sure I will have learned more, too, having visited all the other blogs taking part. What a fantastic idea!

Here’s some more information about Stately Pleasures:

Alice Brown has just landed her dream job. Property manager at Davenport Manor, a British stately home. It’s only a nine-month contract to cover maternity leave, but it’s the boost up the career ladder she so desperately needs.

Unfortunately, things don’t get off to the best start, when Alice finds her boss, Jeremy Davenport, in a compromising position. Far from being embarrassed by what’s happened, Jeremy turns things around on Alice and makes her out to be the one in the wrong. So when he and his best friend and head of security, Ethan Hayes, then throw an ultimatum at her, she’s so stunned and confused that she goes along with their indecent proposal.

When the dust settles and Alice has time to think about things, though, she realises that perhaps it isn’t such a bad thing. There are worse things she could be doing to advance her career, after all.

Delicious Torment from Alison Tyler (@alisontyler)

I’m delighted to welcome Alison Tyler to my blog today to give us a tantalising teaser from her new novel, The Delicious Torment.

 

The Delicious TormentIn The Delicious Torment, Sam falls down the rabbit hole. That is, if the rabbit hole is a new term for a glistening pit of jealousy. She not only has to learn to deal with her own desires, but she has to decide whether she can deal with Jack’s. That is, if what Jack wants isn’t only her. If what Jack desires is Alex, as well. How does she do? Well, see for yourself…

 

What the fuck? I thought. Oh, Jesus. What was going on?

Jack stood behind Alex, and he had a flogger in place. My mind tripped over itself in a mad rush to explain the situation. But my pussy didn’t need any explanation. I grew instantly wet at the sight, as I realized I hadn’t seen Jack in action like this before. Not outside of gazing into a mirror while he punished me, making me watch while he tanned my ass for me.

This was different. Jack was in charge of someone else’s pain. Someone else’s ultimate pleasure. Have I ever felt such a surge of white-hot jealousy before? I can’t think of a time. My stomach twisted, but my sex responded as strongly as if Jack had picked up a flogger and walked toward me.

Alex didn’t say a word. Didn’t make a sound. Jack leaned forward, so that his strong chest pressed firmly against Alex’s naked back, and I could imagine the words he was whispering in Alex’s ear. I told myself that this was about me—about Alex being unable to tail me proficiently. But that was only the story I made up for myself. I had no idea what the true dynamic was between these two men. I’d come into their game late. Alex had been working for Jack since his senior year in college. They had history I couldn’t begin to unravel.

Jack took a step back and started to work, and I saw Alex’s muscles tighten and release upon each blow. The room was starting to fill up as more guests arrived. There were a host of devices in the room, and I could hear different sounds as other slaves were buckled into place, or whipped, or chastised. But that was white noise to me. I was focused, intent, on the action right before my eyes.

Too intent, it turned out. Because before I was aware of what was going on, a queenly platinum-blonde woman in tight black satin stepped in front of me. She gripped my chin in her hand and forced me to face her. I tried to pull away, wanting to watch now as Jack dropped the flogger and reached for a crop. Some other little minion nearby undid Alex’s belt and dropped his slacks. And oh, I wanted to see that.

The woman, displeased that I had not paid her proper attention slapped my cheek hard and I broke from my daze.

“Jack’s asked me to take care of you,” she explained, her voice cold. “While he’s busy.”

I nodded, quickly, trying to catch up with the script that seemed to be moving at fast forward. Alex was groaning. Not loudly, butt loud enough for me to hear. I really wanted to know was what Jack was saying to him. The burn of jealousy intensified, and I would have wept had the lady before me not forced my focus on her deep green eyes. Fake green, I saw immediately. Too emerald to be true.

To my horror, she released the cuffs and the bindings holding me in place. She was going to take me somewhere else, somewhere away from Jack. I pulled back from her immediately. No thought of what might happen. No consideration of who she was, who she might be. I could not leave Jack and Alex by themselves—even if they were “by themselves” in a room of people. I wanted to see how Jack touched Alex afterwards. Would he be gentle with him? Would he wrap Alex in his arms? That thought made me want to double over, my stomach clenched.

The woman was not someone to mess with. I should have understood that by the fact that she’d slapped my face within seconds of “meeting” me. She gripped my hair in her hand and pulled back, hard, and in seconds, she had assistants at her side, two men who crowded close to me. They didn’t touch me. But their sheer size was intimidating. I looked from her to the men and then back to her again.

“Jack has asked that we take care of you,” she said, and her voice was lulling now, as if she intended to quiet me, the way you’d soothe a spooked animal. “Will you come on your own?”

I looked at the men, looked through the gap between them to Jack and Alex, and I felt myself digging in my heels. Quite literally. I was going nowhere until Jack told me to. They could drag me out, and I’d cause a scene, and maybe that’s what people around here lived for, but I’d take that risk.

“Jack has to tell me that himself,” I said, and I saw a glimmer of something in the woman’s faux jewel eyes. A flicker of understanding. She touched one of the men’s shoulders and nodded, and he headed over to where Jack was now methodically cropping Alex. I could see the marks, the welts, and I felt a shudder work through me.

There was a hushed conversation out of my earshot, and then Jack leaned against Alex once more, and I knew in my head he was promising pain, more pain, in a moment. Then Jack was at my side, and the lady and her enforcers gave us space. “They’re to get you ready for me,” he said. “Don’t worry so much.”

Available from: Amazon UK | Amazon US and all other good booksellers.

She believes it won’t rain if she doesn’t bring an umbrella, prefers hot and dry to cold and wet, and loves to spout her favorite motto: You can sleep when you’re dead. She chooses Led Zeppelin over the Beatles, the Cure over NIN, and the Stones over everyone. Yet although she appreciates good rock, she has a pitiful weakness for 80s hair bands.

In all things important, she remains faithful to her partner of eighteen years, but she still can’t choose just one perfume.

Official Release Date For Stately Pleasures!

I’m happy dancing around the room this morning, as it’s the official release date for my debut novel, Stately Pleasures! It’s been available on a few digital outlets for a little while, but from today you should be able to order the paperback, too, and bag the Nook edition and also purchase directly from the Xcite Books site (which means I make a little more cash per copy!).

Here’s a reminder of what it’s all about:

Alice Brown has just landed her dream job. Property manager at Davenport Manor, a British stately home. It’s only a nine-month contract to cover maternity leave, but it’s the boost up the career ladder she so desperately needs.

Unfortunately, things don’t get off to the best start, when Alice finds her boss, Jeremy Davenport, in a compromising position. Far from being embarrassed by what’s happened, Jeremy turns things around on Alice and makes her out to be the one in the wrong. So when he and his best friend and head of security, Ethan Hayes, then throw an ultimatum at her, she’s so stunned and confused that she goes along with their indecent proposal.

When the dust settles and Alice has time to think about things, though, she realises that perhaps it isn’t such a bad thing. There are worse things she could be doing to advance her career, after all.

So, what are you waiting for? Get your hands on this kinky ménage now: https://lucyfelthouse.co.uk/published-works/stately-pleasures/

Also, just to let you know that Best Bondage Erotica 2014, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, is available early. The eBook edition is available worldwide, and it looks as though US folks can get the paperback now, but UK folks will have to wait until March. This sexy anthology contains my story, Clipped, and marks three years in a row that I’ve been in Best Bondage Erotica – I’m so happy about this. Hopefully I’ll get in next year, too! 😉

Happy Reading,

2013 Round Up!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and are looking forward to fun New Year celebrations. While I am looking forward to 2014 and what it will bring, I’d also like to reflect on 2013 and what I achieved. I don’t often blow my own trumpet, so it’s cool to remind myself of what I’ve done. Here are a few highlights, in no particular order:

My total publication count was 30, which includes print and eBooks. This is the same total as last year, but I’m definitely not beating myself up over that, because I’ve had much longer stuff released and have been working on more novellas and novels. I also don’t count reprints.

I also totted up my word count. This includes works not yet finished or submitted, as well as published works, and I achieved a whopping 377,041 words this year. I’m very proud of that, especially since I don’t write full-time, and I don’t even write every day.

Here’s a photo of the paperbacks I’ve been in this year – click the image to enlarge.

2013pubs

 

All in all, it’s been an awesome 2013! I already have books lined up for 2014 so it’s already off to a promising start. I’m looking forward to it.

Happy New Year!

Fancy Some Sudden Sex?

Who doesn’t, eh? Well, you’ve come *ahem* to the right place. The fabulous Alison Tyler has compiled the Sudden Sex anthology, which is full of 69 hot and quick stories (including two of mine – The Not-So-Blushing Bride and At the Car Wash). Here, I’ve reviewed two of them, so you can get an idea of what this super hot book is all about.

The Scribe by Tabitha Rayne

A nameless woman has an unusual use for pen, paintbrushes and ink. When her lover walks in on her kinky interlude, she’s embarrassed, ashamed. But he forcefully sweeps aside such notions and demands to know, and see, more of what she’s been up to. He quickly embraces the idea, joins in, resulting in a highly sensual and inventive sexual encounter, which will make all the hairs stand up on the back of your neck – in a good way.

A smokin’ hot quickie from Tabitha Rayne, and one that will appeal to creative and artistic types.

Crawling Through Temptation by Elise Hepner

Lela and Max are celebrating their one year anniversary by going caving – an idea many would find bizarre, but given the hobby was how they met, it’s the perfect way to celebrate. Crawling through narrow tunnels and caves, it’s difficult to see how the story is going to become erotic, but it soon becomes apparent as the tiny space opens out, and the couple indulge in something else they enjoy – one another.

Brief, but intensely sexy, this is a quirky and exciting tale from Elise Hepner.

Sound like your thing? Well, what are you waiting for? Sudden Sex is available several months earlier than originally anticipated, so why not take advantage?
